JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Kids at Miracle Kids Success Academy took park in sun safety week this week.

The kids learned how to apply sunscreen and the importance of loose-fitting clothes in the summertime.

Jessie Tyler with Miracle Kids Success Academy discussed other guidelines they use when outside.

“We have a temperature guideline that we follow, so throughout the day, we announce the temperature and heat index. So our staff knows exactly how long to go out, or if we need to play inside that day,” Tyler said.

Tyler said that they use awning outside the school for added sun protection.
